Our colour this month is hot ... and we can't wait to see how you use this little scorcher on your pages - go wild ladies !!

and some totally amazing inspiration from our wonderful team ...
(in no particular order)

Lisa Johnston (Australia)
This was a cute sketch to work with. I used doilies for the circular elements and added a pop of pink with Dylusions Paint in Bubblegum pink. I added lots of bits from my stash to finish off my layers and added some silly snapchat pics.

Tanya Heritage (Australia)
Pink really isn't my colour but I loved the sketch.

Louise Turner (Australia)
Pink is a real challenge for me - I chose this photo because I wanted to show that it's OK to use pink on boys pages and I tried to un-pink (?!?) by adding some pops of black.

Lisa Marie Watling (South Africa)

Michelle Van Oudtshoorn (New Zealand)

Caroline Elliam (Canada)
I used Poppin' pink spray from Lindy's over a watercolor paper, I add splatters of the same color to have different tones. I played with the sketch a bit to make my layout harmonious to my eyes!

Natsuko Suzuki (Japan)
I used lace paper, ribbons, flowers, rhinestones...all the girly stuff I could think of!

Jessica Toulmin (New Zealand)
I followed the sketch, but as i'm using pre-printed photos I swapped the 2 smaller photos for one 6x4 photo. I also included a piece of patterned paper down the right-hand third of the page. I don't often scrap with pink like this and I loved it!

Melinda France (Australia)

Hello January ...

Welcome to 2018.  Here's to a wonderful year for all of us !

Introducing our first colour of 2018 and a mood board to help inspire you ...


Bayou Blue

and some totally amazing inspiration from our new team ...
(in no particular order)

I was totally inspired by the m&m's! So I used different sizes of round punches to create shapes and movement on my page.

Caroline Elliam (Canada)

I made my background with a resist technique with gel medium over a stencil and I added Bavarian blue magical shaker from Lindy's gang over it for a watercolor effect. I've also painted the blue leaves and wrote the "Sea" with the same blue. From the moodboard I put on some sequins that reminds me the m&m's.

Jessica Toulmin (New Zealand)
I was inspired by the textiles and textures in the moodboard, as well as the circles of the blue candy.

Lisa Marie Watling (South Africa)
 I was inspired by the fabric, the stripes, the writing on the M&M's and also that they form "dots"!

Melinda France (Australia)
I was inspired by the circle shape of M&M’s, the glaze on the pits and the texture of the rugs/towels. So tried to incorporate thread, sewing, circles and used blue ink and embossing powder to colour and glaze some embellishments. Xx

Lisa Johnston (Australia)

Natsuko Suzuki (Japan)
I used watercolors, oil pastels and acrylic paint to create the shades of blue on the background. I took inspiration from the m&m's and dipped a pencil cap in ink and stamped circles. I was also inspired by the rough textures, so I layered the photo with cloth and and tucked some thread under it.

Tanya Heritage (Australia)
I loved the Bayou Blue colour which matched perfectly with Wes’ shirt. I think this is a first that I haven’t used flowers in a layout.

Louise Turner (Australia)
I replicated the rug image with the stripes to create my background.

Michelle Van Oudtshoorn (New Zealand)
Inspired by the denim and stripes, plus the texture of the plant pots.
